Databases \ Library of Latin Texts

Content

Texts from the beginning of Latin literature (Livius Andronicus, 240 BC) through to the texts of the Second Vatican Council (1962-65). It covers all the works from the classical period, the most important patristic works, a very extensive corpus of Medieval Latin literature and texts from the Reformation and Counter-Reformation. The complete works of writers such as Cicero, Virgil, Augustine, Jerome, Gregory the Great, Anselm of Canterbury, Bernard of Clairvaux and Thomas Kempis can thus be consulted. The texts have been taken from the Corpus Christianorum series and from many other leading editions.

Coverage

Patristic and medieval texts covering authors of the 2nd to the 15th Centuries. With the publication of CLCLT-5, the inclusion of Neo-Latin texts begins to expand its coverage beyond the latter of these chronological boundaries.

The Library has licensed series A and B. LLT-A was previously known as CETEDOC Library of Christian Latin Texts (CLCLT) and it continues to develop; series B (LLT-B) complements the original collection with texts from existing editions.
